So I rolled a new preview method into Default Folder X’s system-wide menus in the menubar. Now, not only can you browse all of your files and folders through its quick hierarchical menus, but you can see file previews in little bubbles, like this:
And if you hover over the menu item for a few seconds, that little preview will expand into a large one so you can see more details. Just browsing my hard disk with this has turned up ton of images and documents I didn’t know I still had!
This and a slew of other improvements are in the first beta release of Default Folder X 4.2.1. You can download a copy here to try it out:
There’s a full change log in the Beta Read Me file, and usual disclaimers about it being a prerelease version apply (it may have bugs, etc). I’d love to get some feedback on both the menu item previews and the other improvements, so grab a copy, give it a try, and let me know your thoughts!
